There are three phases of doing an analysis in any CAE application
Meshing is the part of preprocessing which incorporates nodes/elements in the geometric model to make it an FEM Model.
Some analyses may demand a solver or an advanced simulation engine than mechanica to process the mesh created for accurate results of the analysis.
After the solution is given by the third party solver,the results may be interpreted either in Mechanica or another application to make the desired changes in the mesh and reiterate the process until further accurate results are acheived.
